Android OS 4.1 Jelly Bean will first come to the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Nexus 7 and the Motorola Xoom tablet. It’s assumed that most carriers will officially push through an OS update to their flagship devices… late last week HTC issued a statement saying they’ll announce specific Jelly Bean handsets soon, and now Samsung has followed suit. Unfortunately there’s still no confirmation of which devices, but Samsung notes they are working on a full list, plus a gentle reminder that they’re “the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer” and that “Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices.” Here’s the full statement:
“Samsung will soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update. As the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices like the Galaxy S III, and is creating new device categories with products like the Galaxy Note. Samsung has delivered the most Nexus-branded lead OS devices and we are pleased that Google will be bringing Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S customers the first experiences of Jelly Bean on a handheld device.”
Of course, the fine folks over at XDA developers have already been working hard on porting Jelly Bean to various Android devices.
